Yesterday was a fun day at the MS Mansion; with our Top 10 lists all handed in ahead of time, we let the MS Mansion Monkeys run the show whilst we watched you guys duke it out in the comments (“no ________?????? wtf???? you guyz are suxorz i’m never coming here again!!”) If you missed the fun, be sure to take a look at the Top 10 lists of your favorite metal blogger douchebags.
